Back on December 9, WWE announced the nWo would be inducted into the Hall Of Fame. While all of the faction’s members will not be on the podium, the group’s three original stars, Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall will be inducted, along with Sean Waltman, nWo’s sixth member. The company later announced Batista would also be part of this year’s Hall Of Fame class. The Animal announced his retirement from professional wrestling after WrestleMania 35 and is set to be inducted by Fit Finlay.
Despite WrestleMania 36 being less than 53 days away, WWE has not announced any more inductees. However, WrestleVotes has discovered three more stars of professional wrestling are set to be imminently added to this year’s class.
They tweeted last night that The Bella Twins and Jushin “Thunder” Liger will be honoured on April 2. WrestleVotes wrote: “I’ve heard several names talked about for this years Hall of Fame. Was only able to get confirmation on 2 of them as of now, they are: The Bella Twins & Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger.”
Brie Bella and Nikki Bella were mainstays in WWE from 2007 until 2011. After a two year hiatus from the company, they returned in March 2013 and didn’t look back. The pair were both rivals and partners until 2018, during which time Nikki became the longest-reigning Divas Champion in WWE history. The Twins have also helped establish reality TV show Total Divas, and are now stars of their own spinoff series, Total Bellas.
Jushin “Thunder” Liger needs no introduction to professional wrestling fans and is considered one of the greatest junior heavyweights of all time. During his career which spanned four decades, he competed in a myriad of promotions including WCW, Ring Of Honor and Dragon Gate. He also made a special guest appearance in WWE at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn in 2015 when he defeated Tyler Breeze. Thunder was most famous for his time in New Japan Pro Wrestling, however, where he enjoyed a record 11 reigns as IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion.
